My Students

My third grade students come to school every day ready to learn and are excited to be here. "I don't want third grade to end!" is often what I hear from my kids (as I call them and how I feel about each and everyone of them). I love that that they love school and feel safe here. They truly put forth their best effort on a daily basis, competing against their own successes, and helping to prepare one another for the fast-paced world around them.

Our school serves students in grades K-5 and provides rigorous curriculum from fantastic teachers.

I am proud to be a part of such a thriving environment, which allows students to grow in so many ways. With a diverse group of learners at our school, it is one of my main goals to create a rich learning environment where each student can reach their greatest potential.

My Project

My students need the chair pockets to store and keep their materials. This will include folders, notebooks, books, and writing materials. It is my goal that each child will have their own pocket so that they have a personal space to store their belongings within our classroom. Chair pockets will increase organization which will allow students to stay better focused and improve their success in school.

The chair pockets will also help the students more easily transition from one activity to another, as their materials will be right behind them.

This will ultimately lead to more time spent learning and growing! Thank you in advance for your support!
